You've Already Been A Victim Once
Don't Be Victimized Again By Choosing The Wrong Lawyer
Sidewalk defects and accumulations of ice and snow can cause people to slip and fall or trip and fall and seriously injure themselves. In the past, the city was responsible for injuries caused by defective sidewalks. Since a change in the law in 2003, property owners are responsible for injuries caused by adjacent defective sidewalks unless they are one, two or three family homes. Any other type of property owner is responsible for sidewalk defects and snow and ice removal.
No matter who the property owner is who is responsible for the sidewalk that caused you injuries, our Queens sidewalk accident attorneys can help you hold him or her accountable.What To Do After Being Injured In A Sidewalk Accident
